Description

This historic home was built in 1724 and is the original manor home to Glenmore. The land grant was from King George II in 1732, and it's original building dates to pre-Revolutionary time. Since then, this home has had elegant additions and some of them even made from the timbers milled from the property. The slate roof is also likely to have nails from Thomas Jefferson's nail factory at Monticello.

As you drive up the long driveway lined with ancient boxwoods you can already appreciate the history this property has to offer. Set up on a private setting on a high ridge, the grounds enjoy massive oaks, magnolias and is surrounded by yard and open pastures. Separated by 3-board fencing, Glenmore was once a renowned breeding farm for draft horses. You can still find many horses grazing the fields and riding rings around. A riding lesson can even be pre-arranged to fill an afternoon. 

As you enter the foyer, the formal living rooms is on the right, the kitchen is straight ahead and the formal dining room is on the left. Hardwood floors and tall ceilings are throughout this main level. There are two bedrooms on this level; the master with a California King and a Queen bedroom.

Take the sweeping staircase to the second level and you will find the three other bedrooms; a Queen, a California King, and the third bedroom has two twin beds.

Off the kitchen is a deck with outdoor seating and a charcoal grill and below is a large soapstone patio perfect for entertaining. If you feel like taking a stroll, beautiful gardens fill the grounds and there is even a historical landmark that is reverently maintained. It is the private cemetery of Colonel John B. Magruder, who died in the battlefields of Gettysburg, PA and was brought home to his family at Glenmore.

Feel like lounging around pool side? The in-ground swimming pool is surrounded by a wide soapstone patio, and on a clear day, Thomas Jefferson's beloved Monticello can be seen in the distance.

Due to it's historical qualities there is no smoking allowed on the property.

Glenmore Manor is an oasis!! We loved all the areas to just sit and relax. Loved having a round table in the kitchen so we could all gather for our meals. Loved the pool and the lounge chairs there....and the floats! The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms(esp. the downstairs one)were fabulous. We could have stayed longer. This was our first trip to Charlottesville, but probably not our last!! This home is amazing.....the whole group was very impressed!!

The property was magnificent. All of our guests loved the kitchen, the bedrooms and the wonderful bathrooms. The Christmas tree in the den was a really nice touch. Our kids enjoyed visiting with the horses and played in the log cabin on the property. They even made a small snowman after the snowfall. We could not get the fireplace in the TV room to vent properly but that was probably our fault.

Beautiful property with excellent location. Lovely outdoor patio area with pool and excellent views. The kitchen is a bit outdated but if not cooking a big meal it's very serviceable.
